Who'd have dreamt it? A dream comes true for a special young lady



A dream came true the night before last for a young lady called Josey, on her way to the Who’s show at the Verizon Wireless Centre in Manchester, New Hampshire. How? Because Roger Daltrey dedicated the show to Josey, a 12-year-old girl, blind since birth. He’d seen Josey and her family from his limo. They were struggling through a blizard on the way to the venue.  Josey was wearing a Who T-shirt and walking with a cane. Roger arranged for them to be brought backstage before the show to meet him, as Ray Duckler reports in Concord Monitor. Click here for full report .


The following day, Roger got in touch on Skype with the editor of thewho.com and the band’s Facebook and Twitter to ask him to apologise to Josey. It seems that during his dedication to her from the stage,  he’d inadvertently got her name wrong and addressed her as  Chelsea. “I must have been thinking about the Arsenal – Chelsea game,” said Roger, ever the football fan. 


The message got through and Josey’s mother, Lucy,  responded. “We are ecstatic, Roger,” she wrote. “You have made our dreams come true!  Thank you. We are honored and so blessed!! XOXO”.
